Fires again

Just got news that the bush fire is again off and running and we are under threat again.
My nephew lost a camper van and boat. There is a chance of rain tomorrow I certainly hope it becomes a reality and puts the damn thing out.
I am so stressed...and my Dad is in hospital with little chance of making it thru..it's hard when you need to be in two places at once.

Hi Alex,

Sorry to hear of your Dad. These things often all happen at once.
You know he is being cared for right now and though I can't speak for him, most
family in these circumstances will tell you to take care of yourself first.

So do what you have to do, take care and good luck.

Hopefully you will then have time to see him.

Akex, Best of luck with the rain. Hopefully it will finally put the fires out, and allow you to spend more time with your dad.

Thanks.
Feeling better as Dad is much better and has responded to the wonderful care he is receiving.
A little rain came thru up North and fires not so much of a worry now ... So have had time to recharge ...could be better but fortunately got enough to get outta bed most days...and got the sense to know when to be lazy..next challenge has been identified...very demanding.

I have been busy but managed to order on my phone a air conditioner for the astrovan ..such a big deal for me to buy on off the net...but got a 1.6 kw unit cooling only $400 delivered..great place where I bought it..sent a message at 6am saying when to expect it and then the driver rings 30 minutes before ...delivered within 24 hours of making the order...very impressed and so happy to get something small and easy to fit and cool only.. So very happy about that...the question now is will my 2 kVA $200 Aldi Genny run it or will I need yet another Genny...
Alex
